La Placita Cafe

La Placita Cafe

Amabiscas and La Placita stand for Mexican Food extraordinaire. In 1962, Manuel and Nellie Amabisca opened the first La Placita in the San Linda building on Monroe Avenue.  Their son Joe Amabisca opened the second La Placita at 5th Street and Monroe. Today, Barbara Amabisca owns and operates the Café and continues the tradition of using only fresh ingredients to make crispy tacos, chimichangas, enchilidas, and so much more. Try the old school burrito smothered in homemade enchilada sauce served hot. Added margaritas for delicious dinner!

New Banner for La Placita Cafe

The new banner of the Sheriff and Boy is complete and installed at La Placita Cafe at 424 East Monroe Avenue in Buckeye, Arizona.  La Placita Café established in 1962 is owned and operated by Barbara Amabisca who became the owner with the late Joe Amabisca. The parking lot and street corner was spruced up this summer of 2015 with terra cotta stabilized granite to replace the bumpy dirt lot, desert cacti landscaping, and a new banner.

The artwork was done by local artist Loretta Musgrave. Musgrave’s oil paintings depict life in Buckeye. Some of her works include historic images of Historic Downtown Buckeye, the Buckeye Canal, sheep herder, cowboys and homesteaders of the early Buckeye Days. The Sheriff and Boy hangs inside La Placita and is a favorite of Barbara Amabisca.
